Before we are aware on a conscious level, our unconscious is already processing. We can make a decision, ask for a dream and the dream will evaluate the decision.
Make the best decision you can, be very specific with your request, write it out, and state your intention to remember your dreams. If you have any doubts about the answer, try again or reverse your decision and wait for another dream. Follow the guidelines in the Decision Making link on this website.
The most common mistakes people make in trying to get a dream to evaluate a decision are (1) to put more than one decision or too vague an issue to a dream; and (2) not to write down the decision (the more conflicted they are, the more likely they are to forget what they put to a dream).
There is no decision too large or serious to put to a dream.
Note: I am often asked if I have ever experienced or observed anyone receiving
a dream that gave them bad advice. The answer is: NO. However, sometimes we tend to see and hear what we want to see and hear and can ignore the advice of a dream. In every case I have seen where the dreamer ignored the dream the results were negative.
